Cannon REALTORS® Join Together To Feed Families For Thanksgiving
November 19, 2009
“It was important to us that the food we raised within our communities stay in our communities,” explained project coordinator Bridget Jones of Exit Realty Bob Lamb & Associates. “We wanted to make sure that our friends and neighbors were the ones to benefit from our food drive, which is why are proud to call this project ‘From Our Home To Yours.’ This was our first year with this project, and it’s had a great response!” Within Cannon County, MTAR members from Parsley & Todd Realty & Auction, Pedigo & Todd Realty & Auction, and Reed Realty all contributed to deliver a truckload of food to the Food Bank.
“REALTORS® have a responsibility to improve and contribute to the communities in which we live and work,” noted MTAR 2009 Public Relations Chairman Dale Patterson of Keller Williams Realty. “I’m thrilled to see so many of our members get behind an effort to provide food to the needy in our own communities. I’m hoping that, thanks to our efforts, at least a few more families can have a great Thanksgiving this year.”
